Amazon allows managers to terminate employees who refuse in-office work 3 times weekly

Amazon is reportedly intensifying its return-to-office policy by allowing managers to potentially terminate employees who don’t adhere to the three-times-a-week office attendance mandate. The updated guidance suggests a three-step process, starting with a private conversation and documentation, progressing to follow-up discussions, and eventually involving HR, which could lead to disciplinary action or termination. This represents Amazon’s strictest approach yet, but it’s important to note that it doesn’t immediately call for employee terminations. The company initially required corporate employees to be in the office three times a week, later urging remote workers to relocate, and offering voluntary resignation packages for non-compliance. In September, Amazon started sharing individual attendance records with employees, a change from tracking anonymized data.
